The popular heartburn drugs known as proton pump inhibitors have been linked to a range of ills: bone fractures, kidney problems, infections and more. Now a large new study has found that they are associated with an increased risk for dementia as well. Source: Heartburn Drugs Tied to Dementia Risk – The New York Times
The sad thing, from my perspective, is how SIMPLE it is to successfully eliminate heartburn, when you identify and address the root cause. Heartburn drugs, whether prescription or over the counter, only try to manage the symptom, never dealing with what actually causes it.
I have successfully helped vast numbers of clients – from 2 year olds to 70somethings, get off the medications and remain symptom free. Usually it’s some combination of food sensitivity, inflammation and infection, that can be fairly simply addressed.
If you have heartburn and would like help, please make an appointment, either in person or by Skype, so I can help you, too.
